Bulova Accutron Repair and Restoration is our SPECIALTY including Accutron case repair, re-plating services and dial or chapter ring restoration. We receive approximately 1,000 vintage Accutron 214, 218 and 2242 (AccuQuartz), model watches each year. Bulova has been recommending Old Father Time for their vintage Accutron repair since 1995. And when the owner of the Bulova Corporation needed his personal vintage watch repaired, it was sent to Old Father Time. That's why we've been
"The AUTHORITY ON ACCUTRON Repair" since 1995.
Vintage Bulova Accutron watch repair
Our staff of watchmakers is highly skilled and is either a certified or Master watchmaking professional. We've received specific Accutron repair training from Bulova's Master Watchmakers and trainers many years ago. Our watchmakers attend continuing education classes either at AWCI or WOSTEP.
Because of our unique relationship with Bulova, we've also purchased their remaining stock of all vintage 214 & 218 Accutron repair parts.
Accutron Repair Process:
Unlike many repairers, we charge
No Additional FEES
for restoration of individual
Accutron case backs, pushers, crowns, or battery door
components & locking rings. When we quote case restoration, the price is
"all inclusive". If you add the hobbyists' costs for all the various
components of an Accutron case, you'd far exceed our cost for case restoration.
Bulova called Old Father Time to
remaining Vintage Accutron Repair parts inventory. That gives us quite an advantage when
repairing or restoring these great tuning fork timepieces "correctly". We're able to use new/old
stock parts instead of cannibalizing one 50-year-old Accutron to repair another.
We're now receiving so many of these hobbyist "jobs" that, depending on the severity, our watchmakers are beginning to refuse acceptance of them. But it's very hard not to sympathize with Accutron owners' issues. They were promised quality Accutron repair with genuine Accutron OEM parts and claims of being an "expert" in repairing Accutron watches, and all at cheap, cheap prices. Right....
Unfortunately, coils are in very short supply. For that reason, we install them only in watches receiving a "Full Restoration". Luckily coils are needed in only a small fraction of the Accutron repairs we receive.

We receive numerous accutron watches in our shop for repair every week that have been mishandled by hobbyists. Accutron repair is a delicate process requiring specialized knowledge, skills and equipment. Most often, hobbyists don't possess any of them. We are AWCI Trained Watchmakers. We've also been trained by Bulova Accutron Repair Trainers many years ago. We do not employ hobbyists. We do not send your Accutron out to be repaired by someone else.
